I have to agree with the poster above me. I love this style, but I've grown accustomed to a smaller and thinner taskbar. Is there any chance of a variant? :)

the style is great, but you should make a thinner taskbar and smaller start button. the rest is very good!

another great VS b0se! outstanding work, the attention to detail is much appreciated! :clap:

if you would consider feature requests, here are mine:

A. when the color schemes are released, i hope to see one scheme with the same base colors as this release, but more darker
1. Start Menu blue is a tad darker with the menu items black instead of grey
2. the program selection green a tad darker

B. A darker grey base color for the taskbar/menus, complemented with navy, and use different shades of orange for the selections

Please keep up the great work, it _is_ appreciated! :D

Great skin, but there seems to be a problem with the buttons in IE. When the page loads the buttons render fine, but then as soon as mouseover they disappear leaving only the text behind.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

absolutly love it! using it now with windows blinds :D

any chance of this being developed into a full skin... ie. shut down, side pane on folder windows skinned aswell?? it's nice to get rid of those windows blue colours *grin*
also, as a request for future release; just the win logo on the start button??

quick bug report.. unless it's just me :S
the progress bar (when installing or copying files) doesn't start at the start of the allotted progress space.. hard to describe, but i hope it makes sense :D

I would like to compliment you on some great work here b0se! Definitely a :+fav: from me! However in your later releases of this I'd love to see some more color themes and a thinner taskbar... Something about that thing seems just a bit thick.
I also noticed just one glitch which I see in a number of themes. A picture of this glitch (not on this theme, but on another one where it was present) is here: [link] On your theme it only shrinks the window by 1 pixel, so its not serious, but still I sense you're a perfectionist like me :bounce: For example, on your Prominence Pro theme, this bug wasn't present. I wonder if it has to do with using transparency to keep the top of the window skinnier?
Anyways, great work, keep it up and we all appreciate it!

b0se, I can count on you to breathe a breath of fresh air into the stale Skins & Themes section. I reserved commenting until I've had a chance to check out the VS first time and I'm glad I did. The attention to detail I found in this skin hadn't existed before in a lot of your previous skins. Everything, down to the scroll bars have clean, clear lines... the skin overall just really appeals to my sense of simplicity, and the little bits of injected color throughout keep me from becoming bored with it. Keep up the great work, I really appreciate your contributions to the site and specifically the dying Skins & Themes section.

What can I say to that, but thank you!

I'm very glad you've seen all the finer details. Someone made a post on neowin that there was 'nothing to set it apart from other classic mods'. Quite an annoying comment since I spent longer on this theme adding fine details and cinsistency thanany other theme. I can handle 1 bad comment though as everyone else has been very generous.
